The camera has some scratching on the face plate and flash reflector but this is very minor. The camera is in excellent condition with no cracks to the body and has a clean interior and lens. The tiny square viewfinder is also clear. The short brown flexible plastic handle is intact.

The camera utilized 127 roll film. The camera and flash have not been tested.

The deep brown bakelite camera with its stylized red, black, and silver face plate makes a wonderful display piece and addition to any camera collection.

Shipping methods and costs depend on the individual item and the distance it must travel. Most packages will be shipped Priority Mail or Priority Mail Flat Rate.

If you feel the Priority rates are too high please convo myself and I may be able to quote a standard shipping price that is cheaper. Please keep in mind that Priority Mail includes insurance and tracking which is highly recommended and I am reluctant to ship without it.
